How to Select the Perfect Pair of Shoes for Your Ensemble
Shoes, shoes, and more shoes! With so many shoes to choose from, how do you select just one pair as you get dressed for your special event? Believe it or not, choosing shoes can be very easy and there is actually an art to picking the perfect pair, based on what you have on. Read on to learn how your hemline can affect the shoes you choose!
Formal, Floor Skimming Hemline
Without a doubt, go for the stiletto heels. Whether closed toe or open (based upon the season); you need shoes to give your bottom half a boost and help ensure that your hemline skims the floor, not drags on it! While many worry that their superior shoes will not be seen, rest assured that when you walk and move, especially when wearing a flowing, chiffon gown; everyone will get a view of your high heeled accessories. Consider crystal designer shoes. These heels have just the right amount of sparkle that will catch the evening’s light and their design elements will play up a glamorous gown.
Casual, Floor Skimming Hemline
If you are headed to a more casual event and are donning a classic, maxi dress; consider wearing a pair of flat, strappy sandals. Gucci makes some fabulous t-strapped flats while Christian Dior also has some flat, strappy, stunning creations to help dress up your daytime look.
Totally Tea Length
Tea length gowns are popularly worn at weddings and some other semi-formal affairs like showers, christenings, and cocktail parties. This sweet yet chic hemline hits between the ankle and knee, so consider a pair of posh kitten heels. Check out Gucci’s selection of low, but sexy heels.
Short and Flirty
Body hugging, above the knee dresses need platform heels, without a doubt! They not only sculpt your legs and rear; but give you the height that you crave and add the style that you deserve to your short sheath. Cesare Paciotti and Miumiu boast the best platform pumps and offer them in a wide variety of colors, textures, and designs.
Knee Length Hemline
When your hemline falls at your knees; consider picking a pair of wedges. Whether they are lace up bootie or peep-toe wedges; these platform pieces will emphasize calves and look fab with your skirt or dress. Try wedges by YSL or Prada-they can be dressed up or down for many different occasions.
Choosing the right shoe is easy! Simply follow the guidelines above to help you get dressed for your next special occasion.
